Carolyn Trymbiski & Inbound Marketing Inc. in the Community

Veterans Foundations and loyal supporters committed to honor those who sacrificed it all

Beef and Beer Event

The swell of pride, love, and support for returning troops has been terrific since desert storm. Most people buy ribbons for their car, fly a flag at home, even repost patriotic posts or phrases. The raised awareness is wonderful, but there is still a great need for emotional and financial support and for one local woman…it is not enough.

The Duskin Stephens Foundation was organized to Support the United States Special Operations Community through direct support to families of fallen Operators, healing programs designed to combat the effects of PTS, TBI and loss of a loved one, and youth scholarships for children of active duty members of our community.

When Carolyn Trymbiski met her husbands long time friend and high school classmate she was inspired by the stories of service, valor, and honor. She learned of the gaps in supportive transitions when our bravest return home from service in conflict overseas. She learned of what becomes of the family left behind. Carolyn thought that for sure all of the needs of the veterans and their families were taken care of by the us military and their departments, but learned that there are gaps, especially when dealing with emotional issues and transitions. Then she thought of the financial needs and thought again, that for sure the military, insurances, or all of the name brand foundations that so publicly advertise their mission to help injured veterans would have them covered, but learned that many times the benefits just didn't cover the needs of the family, let alone living expenses.

The Duskin and Stephens group organizes a spring event in Pinehurst, NC that serves as the annual event. It is a beautiful venue, but for such a lien group and minimal spent on advertising how big could the attendance get? Well in 2016, More than 2,000 people attended the event; families, friends, local businesses and some that came from long distances to participate in honoring the fallen.

It was the type of event that was like an old time neighborhood picnic, where not everyone knew each other, but they all knew they belonged. People from all corners of the country, some internationally. Carolyn Trymbiski wanted to make the trip, so she and husband Brian drove through the night to attend. The couple remembers the goosebumps as they entered the event, as they saw a few old friends out of thousands, and met hundreds more. They were inspired by the people who came and how everyone came for the same thing, to pay honor to the acts of selfless courage in the name of our freedoms.

They noticed the raffles, the silent auctions and immediately wanted to contribute. They started calling friends with auction interests and asked if they ‘…would beat the max bid to help raise money for these brave men…’ and they were successful. In just a couple of calls, Carolyn Trymbiski, of Doylestown PA, raised almost a thousand dollars. This was the beginning. She started introducing herself to more veterans, more volunteers and before you know it she had donated all of her own money and had started volunteering with the clean up crew.

Carolyn TrymbiskiThe event was so impactful, that Carolyn and her husband Brian came home and continued to look for ways to make a difference, ways to support, ways to show their honor and that they care. As it turns out, the candle of thoughtfulness had not run out for the Trymbiski’s. They learned that a fall event was planned and they immediately reached out to volunteer. In the process, they took the initiative to ask if they could participate in additional fundraising. The foundation administrator, Ann Owen said that these items were hard to come by and mostly accounted for, but Carolyn and Brian wanted to help. They reach out to their friends, family, business associates and were able to raise silent auction items in the value of more than $4,000!

All of the money raised at Duskin and Stephens Foundation goes back to veterans, veterans programs, and families in need. It is amazing what the spirit of giving back can do to motivate some of the most selfless acts in everyday life. The good news is that you may be the next person to be so inspired and motivated.
